We have recently returned from skiing in Val D'Isere and stayed in a hotel for the first time, previous experience had been in catered chalets. L'Avancher made a very pleasant change. Well placed for shopping and bus route to the pistes and near enough to stagger home from the many bars of Val. The staff were very friendly and helpful... More

First time staying in L'Avancher and it ticked every box..! On booking, Isobel on reception couldn't have been more helpful. She supplied the quiet, relaxing room I so needed. Sorted ski pass's, restaurant reservations, sorted ski hire queries. All with a smile and great efficiency. My room was a good size, immaculately clean, quiet & with a lovely balcony with... More

Laurent, We appreciate you taking the time to leave your comment, Hotel L'Avancher opened for the first time in 1958 and was one of the first chalet-hotels in the resort. We have worked hard over the last few years - since Frederic became the owner - to make sure that the authentic and traditional values are preserved and to reopen... More

decently located at one end of the resort, just a quick bus to lifts. and with very nice helpful staff! very willing at all times. would stay again. very useful ski lockers and systems. could have more drying racks in the room or access to the radiator to dry ski clothes.

We had dinner here and thoroughly enjoyed the experience! The hotel and restaurant were well decorated and furnished. We received a very warm and sincere welcome and the most attentive service I can recall in a long time. All of the meals my party ordered were well presented and perfectly cooked. I have no hesitation in recommending this restaurant.

Delivered as advertised. Satisfied customer. Location is excellent - close to buses, restaurants, supermarket and ski lifts. Room and beds comfortable, not large but good by French standards. Friendly and very helpful staff.

We are a small, family-oriented, authentic and traditional chalet-hotel and intend for it to stay that way. We do not boast big suites but rather cosy, functional rooms at an honest price.

Our ski group of 4 persons dined here on the chalet staff night off, we were recommended another restaurant by the chalet staff, which had no reviews available, we took a look and decided against, but used trip advisor to locate L'Avancher. We booked in advance and I would recommend this as it does get busy. So glad that we... More
